More than just fast, the Focus Izalco Max 8.7 Disc Road Bike is a versatile race weapon. To find the perfect balance of weight and aerodynamics, Focus designed the Izalco in the wind tunnel. This build process shows in the frame, with Kamm tail tube profiles and internally routed cables highlighting the bikes fast intentions. With an ultra low weight of 1040g for the frame alone, the Izalco is built with outright speed in mind.

The 8.7 sees a 45mm deep carbon Alex Rims wheelset specified, reducing rotational weight and increasing the bike's acceleration for a lively ride feel. A D-profile seatpost with 15mm offset adds comfort without impacting on the frames race-oriented geometry. Focus have achieved this by pushing the seatpost forwards to compensate, reducing the effective offset to only 2mm. This comfort can be further improved through the use of wider tyres, with the frame having clearance for those up to 28mm.

Focus' Izalco framesets feature their unique floating Rapid Axle Technology (R.A.T). This allows for the best of both worlds, combining the stability and ease of a thru-axle with the speed of quick release. A full Shimano 105 groupset offers longevity and reliable performance, ideal for those looking to take their first steps into racing.
